PALO ALTO, CA and SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/26/13 --
Hortonworks, the leading contributor to and provider of enterprise Apache™ Hadoop®, and WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a leading provider of continuous availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data, announced that the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) will support WANdisco's Non-Stop Hadoop technology. With this announcement, Hortonworks and WANdisco are addressing critical enterprise requirements around multi-datacenter data availability so customers can better leverage Apache Hadoop globally across data centers.
The two companies will jointly go to market to provide integrated, high performance Big Data solutions built on HDP with full integration of WANdisco's Non-Stop Hadoop software. Together, WANdisco and Hortonworks deliver 100% uptime for global enterprises using HDP across multiple data centers.
HDP is the only 100% open source Hadoop distribution with all code contributed to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), and is the only distribution that runs natively on Windows and Linux that enables organizations to capture, process and share data in any format and at scale. With WANdisco's support, HDP is quickly becoming the preferred distribution for the ecosystem to deliver enterprise Hadoop to their customers.
Hortonworks recently entered a reseller agreement with SAP where SAP will resell the Hortonworks Data Platform with the SAP HANA® platform. Hortonworks has also recently highlighted customer wins at Spotify and Xing.
"Global organizations require big data solutions that can meet stringent data and availability needs across wide geographies," said Irfan Khan, senior vice president and general manager, SAP Big Data, SAP. "We believe the integration of WANdisco's active-active replication technology with the Hortonworks enterprise Apache Hadoop distribution makes sense for SAP customers looking to leverage big data."
"Enterprises are increasingly adopting Apache Hadoop as a core element of their IT infrastructure," said David Richards, Chairman and CEO, WANdisco. "Working with Hortonworks is a natural fit given their leadership in the Apache Hadoop community. A major enterprise requirement is continuous data availability and WANdisco's Non-Stop Hadoop Technology is the only technology available that addresses it. The combination of WANdisco, Hortonworks and SAP will provide a reference architecture for Hadoop in the Enterprise."
